it's not your generous lips
not your penetrating gaze
never the smile that
lights up your eyes
nor the warmth of your embrace
that convinced me
i belong with you
i love you not for
the grand displays
of affection thought for me
planned, prepared for
that the public see
all the gifts,
and coming to my rescue
the care and nurturing
never the things that you do
but yes, indeed they count too

i love you not
for what you do
or how you make me feel
rather, i love you
because with you
i am ABLE to feel

gosh.. hopeless... the poem was beautiful when i first wrote it... in my head... last night... but i of course, forgot the lines and the thought... but i couldn't end the day without attempting...
